Stripe Envy

I have been seeing stripes everywhere,  Magazines, TV, etc.  I have been wanting to try it.  After all, it is just paint.  If I don't like it, no harm done.  I tackled one wall.  I think that is enough to change a room.  This wall is 15 ft. long.  I did a stripe every foot, or 12 inches.  I have also seen them closer together.

Before.  Ok, but a little boring.

I used a level with a laser to help me get the lines straight.

So pretty.  I couldn't be happier.  A $15 fix.  It only took a pint of paint.  I also made the stripe a higher sheen.  The wall was eggshell and the stripe semi-gloss.  Total project time was 3 hours.
